Going to my home

"and just as in English, you would never say "I'm going to my home""

I think saying "never" here is incorrect. I can think of situations when I might say this.

Bonjour Rant,

 

Thanks for writing. I'm American and would never say "I'm going to my home." Mostly I would say "I'm going home." In rare situations, I might say "I'm going to my house," such as in response to someone offering their house instead, but I honestly cannot think of a single situation in which I'd say "I'm going to my home" - it just sounds weird.

For instance, if I had a home in the UK and 3 properties in France (one of which I lived in). Which house am I going to? "I'm going to my home in France". I wouldn't say "I'm going to my house in France" as that would be ambiguous.
